I'm not using LtXML for this, but the idea is similar. Since I'm using
my private XML parser and XSL engine (not completely finished yet) I
could stuff them both into a FastCGI application. All files on disk
are XML, and based on their extension they get passed to the FastCGI
process. It finds out which XSL stylesheet to use (either using a default,
based on the DTD type, or through a user setting stored in a cookie),
and produces HTML output.

Probably needs quite a bit of tuning to make it work as the XML standards
intend it, but the concept is indeed very useful.
